6 servings
2 cups flour (250 g)
1 cup water (240 mL)

2. Using a sharp-pointed knife poke three holes in the cap of a plastic water bottle.

4. Heat a very lightly greased nonstick skillet over medium heat. Working quickly, invert the water bottle and drizzle the batter in quick circular motions forming a netlike pattern.
